McAfee keeps blocking downloads saying it has a virus

This goes for about 50 to 75 percent of what I try to download.  Updates, picture files from my cell phone.  These are from secure sites.

Re: McAfee keeps blocking downloads saying it has a virus

This is I'm assuming on your computer when downloading from your phone.  I think it should give you the option to download anyway, no?

All VirusScan knows is that strange files are being downloaded from a strange device so issues warnings on certain types of files.  How exactly it works is a mystery to me, but it's basically for your own protection.

It doesn't know the provenance of the files, i.e. their origin.
